Hi. We recently had to change a bunch of URLs, and now some internal links on the site, plus some cached links on the web, point to the custom Sydney 404 page. My questions are:
I’m using Broken Link Checker as the link checking tool. But the custom 404 page returns 200, so the link checked things that everything is ok. Is there a way to turn off the 200 reply and reply 404 instead? This way, I could find the broken links.
Are there best practices when changing the URL? I know it’s not related to Sydney specifically but would appreciate some tips. Like setting forwarding from the old URL to the new URL somehow? How is that done in WP?
